In Prime-Time Address, Obama Seeks To Calm Nerves
President Barack Obama addressed the country last night between NFL games, in a rare prime-time speech from the oval office.
The president was seeking to calm nerves in the country after last week’s massacre in San Bernardino. The GOP jumped on the chance to criticize the president’s strategy in the Middle East.
NPR’s Domenico Montanaro talks with Here & Now‘s Eric Westervelt about the speech and what the president can realistically do to stop domestic attacks.
